Grahams The Family Dairy has announced the launch of a new artisan Scottish sea salt butter, partnering with Isle of Skye Sea Salt Co. The two family businesses have come together to develop a pure, fresh and great tasting butter, made with milk from Graham’s 100 Scottish farmers and mixed with top quality, natural, unrefined sea salt from the Isle of Skye.
Jean Graham, director, Graham’s The Family Graham said: “Many years ago, Grandma Isabella Graham used to spend hours in the kitchen making the naturally fresh Scottish milk into rich, creamy butter. The butter was churned for just the right length of time to give a taste and flavour no other butter could match. We use the same recipe today with natural, unrefined Isle of Skye Sea Salt for an extra special taste experience. Ideal for cooking or spreading on a freshly baked loaf of bread”.
Chris and Meena Watts, directors, Isle of Skye Sea Salt Co, said: “We are thrilled to work with the Graham’s family and Scotland’s number one Scottish Food Brand to produce Graham’s Scottish Butter with Isle of Skye Sea Salt. Our pure eco-friendly sea salt resonates so well with the natural beauty of Skye as a brand. Our many awards reinforce the fact that adopting an eco-friendly ethos across all our activities – from loch to larder – has allowed us to produce a top-quality Scottish product loved by chefs and food lovers across the country. We are very excited that that Graham’s latest butter now includes our sea salt. We are proud to be part of the Scottish Food and Drink Industry and feel that Grandma Isabella would approve of this match”.
The Graham’s butter range has won several awards, including the Overall Dairy Champion and Gold Award at the Royal Highland Show. The dairy’s Organic slightly salted and unsalted butter, slightly salted and unsalted Scottish butter and Organic spreadable butter have all won prestigious Great Taste Awards. All awards are presented for the taste and texture of a product.
Graham’s Isle of Skye Sea Salt Butter is now available in SPAR stores across Scotland, and in Tesco from 26 October, with the aim to roll out across the rest of the UK.
